So. The hard drive is "bad", and they can't get my files off unless we pay almost 300 dollars for them to ship it somewhere, where the files may not even be able to be saved anyway. So since it's still under warranty, the other option is let them ship it to Sony to get a new hard drive installed. All I keep thinking is, it happened once and it can happen again. Plus when I brought the computer into the tech guy. He looked at my mom and said, "well that's why people buy Macs," when she asked if there were a lot of people who come in with hard drive and/or Microsoft problems. Ugh I don't know what we are going to do.
The only thing that brightened my day was a nice bit o' sussy from Bernard. It's not something that I can take a picture of, but it does have to do with the computer issues and my pictures. THANKS A BUNCH!
